Kylie Minogue planning comedy actress careerNovember 3rd, 2008 - 5:39 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 3 (ANI): Pop singer Kylie Minogue has her sights set on a career as a comedy actress.
The Aussie singer rose to fame in Australian day-time soap opera Neighbours and has returned to her thespian roots several times throughout her career, with a cameo role in 2001′’s Moulin Rouge! and on the small screen in a Dr. Who Christmas special last year.
She was recently tapped to appear in a new movie by The Edge of Love director John Maybury.
And now the singer is planning to go back to acting full time.
“I started out as an actress and I thought if I was lucky that would be my career. Then I started singing and I was in that weird space where people say ”You can”t be a singer, you”re an actress.” Then they”re saying, ”Well you”re a singer, you can”t be an actress,” Contactmusic quoted Minogue, as saying.
“I hate that! If you”re creative, there’’s no reason you shouldn”t work in different mediums.
“Recording and being a performer, thankfully that’’s gone really well, but now I”m starting to think again about acting,” she added.
And the Spinning Around hitmaker is convinced she has found her niche in comedy.
“It’’s so much fun. It’’s where I come from so I”m very comfortable to go back to that. It’’s not that well known that I”m funny, but I am funny. People who know me will tell you,” she said. (ANI)
